Tuesday’s best and worst of fantasy baseball

Three up

Matt Cain- San Francisco Giants
Vs. Chicago Cubs
Win: 8 IP, 2 H, 0 ER, 10 K

Cain was brilliant last night, and had to be because, as always, he received little run support. Cain's real problem? He isn’t pitching in 1996. Throw together a lineup of Rich Aurilia, Ray Durham, Omar Vizquel, and Dave Roberts then and you’ve got a juggernaut.

Matt Cain: A man clearly ahead of his time.

Aaron Cook- Colorado Rockies
Vs. San Diego Padres
Win: CG, 5 H, 0 ER, 4 K

In the all-time Cook Rankings, Aaron finds himself somewhere below Beano and above Dane. Seriously, I could listen to Beano Cook talk all day.

John Danks- Chicago White Sox
Vs. Cleveland Indians
ND: 8 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 8 K

Let’s run down all the wonderful things White Sox fans must love about John Danks.

1. He’s quietly become the ace of the Sox’ staff.
2. The man he was traded for, Brandon McCarthy, hasn’t done anything in Texas and is currently on the 60-day DL.
3. Proclaimed Wrigley Field is a "(bleep)hole" that wreaks of urine.

Because of all this- before the age of 23, I may add- I propose the nickname ‘John Tanks’. Now if only he could play quarterback…

One down

Randy Johnson- Arizona Diamondbacks
Vs. Milwaukee Brewers
Loss: 3.2 IP, 8 H, 7 ER, 6 K

The Big Unit is unquestionably the coolest pitcher of his generation. Even when he gets rocked, like last night when he couldn’t get out of the fourth, he still strikes out six guys.
